A love letter to radio

Cascada De Flores


Later this Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock, we'll hear a fabulous rerun from the Patchwork Quilt archives.  Cascada De Flores perform part of their tribute to live radio in Mexico and Cuba from the 1930s and 1940s, Radio Flor.  Inspired,  I found all kinds of Radio Ephemera (pun intended) such as jingles, announcements, commercials, and the like, from historical bay area, Ireland, Antarctica, interspersed with other live bands performing live on the radio or singing about the radio.  We'll hear Jesse Colin Young, Hank Williams, Rose Maddox, Chuck Brodksy, and Elvis Costello.  Meanwhile, I'll be getting ready for the event tonight at Ashkenaz in Berkeley, doors opening at 7.  Hope to see you there!
